Caribbean waste control

The airport at Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands has undergone a total refurbishment programme to cope with a doubling of traffic over the last ten years. KEE Process and its agent for the Caribbean, Waste Water Solutions International, supplied the replacement sewage treatment system.

The only provision for handling sewage at the airport were cesspits and septic tanks which were considered a pollution hazard.

A self-contained KEE BioDisc system was selected to automatically manage and treat the influent coming from airport facilities and aircraft toilets. The treated effluent is discharged into a bore well.
